  1. I don't want to recommend what to order, because everybody's taste is different, but I can recommend these three places as I have enjoyed many meals at them...
    Sesame Seed, Danbury-Casual, fun, sit down restaurant
    Hanna's Restaurant/Market, also in Danbury-small restaurant attached to a middle eastern market. Great place to go if you are looking to have something to eat, as well as do some shopping!
    Jules Mediterranean, Monroe-more upscale than the ones in Danbury, very clean!

        I second the Hanna's recco! It's a fantastic place! If you are interested in obtaining Middle Eastern ingredients, this is a great place for that too.

          I love the ingridents I would love to take a Middle Eastern cooking class. Thanks

        2. re: mom2

          Hanna's and Myrna's (both locations) are very good. Hanna's, if i remember correctly, has a better selection of lebanese wines. Myrna's in Greenwich is the nicest of the three spaces.

          1. re: LW1

            I have been many times and I am bored with them, and the space isn't that important as it is authentic good and clean food, want something outside of Stamford, greenwich etc, I think that Danbury seems to have more down to earth real Mom ans Pop places. If you have any suggestions please let me know, thanks

        3. myrnas mediterranean...order from the stamford location for take out, for dine in, eat at the greenwich location...the vegetarian platter is excellent...also the their kibbe and taboule salad...excellent baba ganoush

          i also love the arabic chicken shwarma platter from laylas falafel in stamford. get it with the lentil rice, you will not be disappointed. comes with garlic sauce for dipping..home made i saw them dump it out of the cuisinart..its def fresh...but your breath will stink for days!! all worth it though!!!!
